When it comes to the giving of our financial resources, the Bible teaches us that there are two main forms of giving that honors God --- tithes and offering. Here at Full Gospel we encourage you to honor Him with your time and money. Find out why.
Those two main forms of giving are tithing and offerings. If you are unable to make it to a service, please submit your gifts online.

WHY GIVING IS IMPORTANT
The tithe, according to the Bible, literally means the 'tenth part' or the 'tenth portion.’ In Biblical days, the people of God gave God a tithe or 'tenth' of their harvest (resources). The Bible even goes on to say that the people of God recognized and understood that the 'tithe' was holy and it belonged to God.
The Bible also teaches that the people of God gave offerings, which are separate and distinct from the tithe, to honor God as well. As people of God, we embrace this principle of tithing by honoring God with a tithe or 'tenth portion' of our financial resources. We also give God offerings. We do this because we recognize that the resources we have were given to us by God.
Here are 4 personal reasons why we as people of God honor God through our giving:
LOVE - we give God the tithe and our offerings because we love God.
LORD - we give to God because God is the Lord of our lives. We recognize that He is the most important priority in our lives.
LOYALTY - we give because giving shows our loyalty and commitment to God. It shows that we understand and accept His word and we embrace the principles of giving that are outlined in the scriptures.
LIVELIHOOD - we give because when we give our tithe and offering, it says to God that we recognize that God is the source of our livelihood. When we give to God we are saying that we understand that the only reason we have what we have (our possessions, our financial resources, etc..) is because God blessed us with it.
Here are a few Bible Verses about Tithing and Offering from the King James Version (KJV):
Leviticus 27:30 - And all the tithe of the land, [whether] of the seed of the land, [or] of the fruit of the tree, [is] the LORD'S: [it is] holy unto the LORD.
Malachi 3:10 - Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that [there shall] not [be room] enough [to receive it].
2 Corinthians 9:7 - Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, [so let him give]; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.
